-known authority of this body, the united states senate, is likely to be the advise and consent pri provisions. constitution. article 2, section 2, with the advice and consent of the senate the president shall appoint ambassadors and others. and there are about 1, 100 of those that the president appoints. and two years ago and then just last week we streamlined the confirmation process a little bit to narrow the focus on the most important appointees and make it easier to get them confirmed. so those are the checks and balances that the constitution meant to establish. they did that so that we would have liberty from a tyrannical executive branch, which is what the founders were worrying about, and the court is as that i had that the president exceeded that. thertherefore, these two memberf the nlrb should resign immediate lid and pack their bags and go home with our thanks for their hard work despite the fact that the cases they voted on ought to all b be vacated. a new sign needs to go up at the national labor relations board. take down the sign that say, open for business. put up a sign tha

of united states senators are really in line with what president obama has been calling for, you know, really all the way through his first term. and i think president obama's advocacy and his focus on the need for comprehensive immigration reform during his campaign really created the space for and quite frankly the outcome of the election created this space for this bipartisan cooperation, but, you know, i want to give you a healthy but. there is, you know, the road is littered with gangs of senators, good intentions that were consumed by the legislative process, and, you know, what i'm hopeful about in the house is certainly that the majority of democrats in the house embrace comprehensive immigration reform and the principles that were put forward by the gang of eight, and i'm confident when president obama talks about it today it will be similar. but the question is will the speaker who is dealing with still his group of really extreme republicans who have already signalled not very good comments about the proposal, you know, will he eventually let the will of the house work, the

rubio, the republican senator of florida, himself an immigrant from cuba to the united states. he's out there selling this comprehensive immigration reform legislation to some skeptics, including on the rush limbaugh show today. listen to this. >> i think there's this false argument that's been advanced by the left that conservatism and republicans are anti-immigrant and anti-immigration and we are not. never have been. we are pro-legal immigration and we recognize that our legal immigration system needs to be reformed. we also recognize, because conservatism has always been about commonsense, that we have an existing problem that has to be belt with in the best way possible. >> how important is rubio's role in getting this comprehensive legislation reform passed? >> i don't think you can overstate it, wolf. it's very, very important. here's someone with undeniable conservative credentials, a bona fide member of the tea party who is effectively trying to save, i would argue, save the republican party from itself on the question of immigration. is he somebody that can go on the rush limb

the senate will decide when it is in recess, not the president of the united states. so if senators go home at 5:00 at night and come back at 7:00 the next morning, that's not recess. if they go home for thanksgiving, that's not recess. it's only when they shut down and stop their business like at christmastime. that's the recess. >>brian: the best example during the bush years was ambassador bolton. wasn't going to get passed, the senate goes on recess, the senate puts him forward, he goes on for two years. >> as much as we like and respect john bolton his nomination would have been invalid. the vacancy says the nomination must arise during the recess and filled during the recess. >>brian: how outrageous is it, we go by the rulings to have the white house ignore the rulings? why don't we start ignoring the white house? >> that is a very serious issue. the national labor relations board does not have a valid number of people on it. therefore, everything they have done with these two people on it, everything they continue to do is invalid and the white house is doing nothing about it. >>bria

with the decision from the united states court of appeals, the d.c. circuit, which says that its appointments, president's appointments are unconstitutional in the pro forma recess. >> well, that's right. it said that the president made recess appointments at a time when the senate wasn't in recess. according to article 2, section 2 of the constitution, you can't do that. >> why did it take so long to be challenged? i think that has happened a number of times before. >> it has. but when the president did that, we talked about it in the senate. we republican senators that we could either blow up the senate and go out in the street and holler. we decided to use the system we have. so we hired an attorney to tyke the case to court and the judges unanimously ruled that the president exceeded his constitutional authority. it's an important one because this is the part of the constitution that says we don't want a tyrannical executive, that's why we have a country. i went to mt. vernon last year and our revolution was about restraining an imperial presidency, then a king. >> would the president not

to the united states supreme court by franklin roosevelt, liberal justice hugo black said, and i'm going to quote him right here for you. he said "there are absolutes in our bill of rights and they were put there on purpose by men who knew what words meant and meant their prohibitions to be absolutes." end quote. >> justice black said that in a very long lecture about the bill of rights at nyu law school in 1960. but in that lecture where justice black said there are absolutes, he very specifically said the second amendment is not one of them. he pointed out that the supreme court in a unanimous decision that included his vote, had already restricted the second amendment to not include the right to have a machine gun, or a sawed off shot gun, the favorite tools of bank robbers and gangsters at the time. and so crazy wayne was not standing on the liberalism of justice hugo black last night. he would have been upset to see his words manipulated by the lobbyists, who make sure that when mass murderers enter the shopping malls and areas, they will be able to fire as many bullets as possible
